Run Wild Wine is a series of vintages that boasts organic ingredients and natural flavors. I designed packaging that uses a refined, clean image strategy to reference the understated demeanor of the brand, as well as the natural origins of the product.
Young the Giant
I developed a branded web presence for Young the Giant and their 2017 Home of the Strange tour. The focus of this redesign was to create a cohesive user experience that would enable access to all of the band's content through a streamlined "hub-site", locating everything from album purchasing to social media feeds in one place. The package includes a redesigned website, templates for social media posts, standards for photography, and samples of branded merchandise.
Lodge Love Handles
Working with Lodge Cast Iron, I helped design the press release kit for their new dual-handled pans. The new "Lodge Love Handles" were shipped to members of the media prior to its release to allow for early first impressions. We designed the press-kit to champion the item's new features, as well as acknowledge the kit's spring release date.
I designed book covers for “Aesop’s Fables”, a collection of short stories meant to impart simple life lessons onto young readers. I am interested in the collection’s “bite-sized” approach to teaching and designed covers that reference the modular nature of these stories, as well as their recuring characters.
Chattanooga Data Visualization Series
I have started creating a series of data visualizations that explore various aspects of the city of Chattanooga. The goal of these visualizations is to translate raw data and complex information into digestible narratives through the use of video and motion graphics.

Reel Talk Podcast
I designed the brand for the TV and film podcast "Reel Talk". The podcast prides itself on its straight-forward and informative structure, so I wanted to create assets that communicated the show's simple, earnest, and personal nature. I also created multiple forms of promotional content for the podcast to deploy across various social media platforms.

- Matsuo Basho
These maps were created to offer tourists of Japan's Iga Province a new way to explore both the region, and the work of its most famous poet, Matsuo Basho. The spirit of Basho's work is the joy of exploring the natural world, and these maps encourage visitors to appreciate their journeys in the same way that Basho did.
Motion graphics are a special form of digital content that provide the ability to introduce information while simultaneously shaping a viewer's perception of it. When thoughtfully designed, I believe animated content can transform information into something more memorable and impactful.

Cinema Essentials Review Guides
When it comes to movies, we will often allow our viewing decisions to be based off of review scores more than our own feelings and interests. I wanted to challenge the acceptance of other’s experiences as substitutes for our own by pointing to the impersonal systems that can control a film’s rating. I developed a series of Review Guides that measure only the most basic elements of a movie; the generic results help us consider that the things we value most can easily be overlooked when encountered by someone else.
I designed a modular graphic system for the annual gathering of the Twitch.tv community, "TwitchCon". The system use a series of "3D icons" that reference the various types of channels and game genres featured on the streaming platform. These visual assets are designed to be versatile and support a variety of content, including event promotions, schedule information, ID badges, and presenter spotlights.

"3D Icons" Showcase
Night Shift is a narrative based video game I created for my Senior Thesis that explores new forms of storytelling. Players assume the role of a Security Guard working at a self-storage facility in the desolate Nevada desert. Navigating through the game requires players to make a series of choices that leads them down one of many branching story-lines.
I developed the concept and wrote the game’s multiple story-lines. I also created all of the introduction animations and 3D models, as well as coded all of the gameplay.
